brianabw2STAFF and ADVISORS


Briana Lipka became our new Program Director in July 2016 – replacing Richard McMurtry who served as Program Coordinator for 11 years.  Briana is a San Jose State University Environmental Studies

graduate.  She did a brief stint in occupational health before returning to her true love – environmental protection, restoration, education and enjoyment!

She is now coordinating our creek cleanup program  and  corporate outreach effort, and managing our planning grants for fish migration barrier removal,  invasive plant species removal and habitat improvements on Stevens Creek and Coyote Creek.


Briana is leaving the Creeks Coalition in March 2017 to take a job in Brooklyn doing environmental work.  We wish her well!


The Creeks Coalition is looking for a part-time (10 hrs/week) person to coordinate our community volunteer creek cleanup program.
